BBC Good Food - Recipes, tools & cooking tips
By BBC Worldwide
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The BBC Good Food – Recipes, tips and cooking tools app is free to download, but, charges for additional curated cookbooks. We offer 20 free recipes, 50 glossary items, cooking tips and a multiple timer tool for free in the app.
If you have lost access to your paid cookbooks you will be able to re-download to your iPhone or iPad without paying again - please refer to the instructions in the app within menu>settings>manage in app purchases. If you own both an iPad and an iPhone you will be able to download your purchased cookbooks on both devices without paying twice. Please ensure you are logged in with the same Apple ID on both devices and follow the instructions at the bottom of this description.
However, if you downloaded cookbooks for free during our promotional offer, you will not be able to redownload across devices or on to a new device. This is something we are aiming to make possible in a future release.
Whether you’re looking for weekday inspiration, trying to cook the perfect steak or attempting your own homemade ice cream, get cooking with the new BBC Good Food - Recipes, tips and cooking tools app. This app lets you buy and store all the existing BBC Good Food cookbook apps, and organise your favourite recipes and shopping lists in one place.
The app is free to download, and comes with 20 of our favourite recipes, like, Beef & beer pie, Summer vegetable curry and Chocolate & raspberry pots. It also includes tools like our simple-to-use roast timer, handy weight converters, and a basic glossary of ingredients and techniques, to get you started.
All recipes and tools found in the app are available offline.
Each recipe includes nutritional information on kcals, protein, carbs, fat, saturated fat, fibre, sugar and salt per serving.
And you can set your app to display recipes in metric or imperial measurements, according to your preference.
These are the existing cookbooks available to buy from within this new app, each with over 160 recipes to try:

What's New in Version 1.9.1
- Updated branding
Favourites disappear constantly etc
Have to say, I agree with the comments below. £1.49 a cookbook, ok recipes, but even more frustratingly, on every occasion that I've favourited recipes from the bought cookbooks they've disappeared by the time I've gone back into the app. The bought cookbooks are still there but have to re-download again in order to access the recipes and I imagine this is why my favourites from those books vanish. Also imagine it uses up quite a bit of data to download time and again. I've given this app a chance for months - my verdict is a thumbs down. Try the M&S version; small number of recipes but lovely ones and those you've saved stay put.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME DOWNLOADING
Literally downloaded less than 5mins ago and I'm already going to delete!!! Having spent time online looking at the recipes there and creating my own saved collection I thought I might be able to get an app making it easier to find and access my recipes.......WRONG!!! This app does not allow you to log in and access your collection and it doesn't even allow you to find any decent recipes without having to pay an extra £1.49 PER COOKBOOK!! When you can get recipes in that cookbook for FREE on the website!! Total RUBBISH! Deleting it right now! Such a shame if they put some real time and effort in they could have something quite good!
Worth it for ease of access
Having read the other reviews; I agree with the general consensus that it seems silly to pay for recipes which appear of the website. I, however, do like it for ease of access... It's easy to get lost online and much simpler here!
One massive improvement would be. When you're looking at different recipes, click on one.. Then click to go back... The page always goes right to back to the top... So if you were halfway down. You have to scroll right the way back to where you Where!
